Given FootJoy’s dominance, it’s difficult for any other company make a dent in the golf glove market. One company that appears to have a good chance is HIRZL, a Swiss-based company (with U.S. headquarters in Texas) that only designs and makes gloves-for golf, cycling and horseback riding.
Each glove, according to the company, features an ergonomic design and materials that include kangaroo leather (palm) and cabretta/airtech mesh (backhand). In addition, the company says each glove has a 100 percent sweat free palm and up to three times more grip in dry conditions and five times greater grip in wet weather conditions.
HIRZL uses what it calls GRIPPP technology in its kangaroo leather TRUST Series of golf gloves; its SOFFFT Flex Cabretta glove uses the company’s 72-step tanning procedure that extends the peak performance level of the glove far longer than other brands.
HIRZL is also the official golf glove of the RE/MAX World Long Drive Championships. The golf gloves are available in three series: TRUST Control for the ultimate in grip; TRUST Feel for lower handicap players and those seeking better grip and performance in all types of weather conditions and; SOFFFT Flex for softness and long-lasting performance in a Cabretta glove.
All HIRZL golf gloves are available in men’s and ladies models, in right and left hand from small to X-Large sizes as well as cadet sizes, and are sold at leading clubs.
